The aim is to read seven works of classic literature in 2012. Only three of them may be re-reads.
What is considered a classic? A work that transcends time. Usually it's well recognised but there are many lesser-known gems too.
Here's my planned reading list for this challenge (please let me know if you don't think they're classics, and I'll try a bit harder!):
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
None of these are re-reads. I can't wait to get into them!
